My visit to St. Remy in the south of France was nothing short of inspiring. I walked in the footsteps of Van Gogh. He spent time in the asylum there before he moved to Auvers-sur-Oise where he spent his last days painting before his suicide. He painted at least 15 paintings of olive groves around the asylum as well as his famous "Irises". I stood in front of the olive grove closest to the asylum and snapped a photograph, the subject of this painting.
